Has anyone run VGAP via wine on linux yet.
Currently reading wine docs to see how to install windows based programs. Can't be rocket science............. can it :shock:

I've considered the same, but haven't tried it yet either.

Depends on who's doing the reading.

How rude :P

anyway i remember reading here somewhere, sometime that vgap can be put on a thumb drive and run of it. All thats required are the .vbx files (thread/gauge etc).

So now i thinks, if i put those in the vgap plan 1 directory and right click on the winplan.exe in Ubuntu, chose the wine option, maybe that will work.

Or do i need to trick it by creating a windows folder, and inside a systems folder and put them in there........... after all how smart can vgap be.

Just curious, has anyone compiled the vgap floppies into cd format.

I copied my floppies onto my HD. When I created PHost directory, I installed it straight from my HD, so copy all the files (there are no hidden files) from your floppies into a single directory on a CD.


Hope that helps.

I've done something similar to Cherek. I keep a copy of VGAP Dos & Winplan (from disc copies) on my thumb drive that's always with me. If I want to setup a game, I can do so in seconds.

Sometimes, I use to do a turn at work from time to time. Recently, only certain thumb drives are allowed in our computers at work (and they are monitoring USB drive access), so I haven't be able to do my turns at work. I still keep the files up to date, for just in case.

We've started to have some issues as well. I can't run VPA anymore on certain machines, but have no problem with say PCC. Wish I could bring my laptop in like the old days.
